6:05 am
>> my original instinct was to pull out and historically i like following my instincts. but all my life, i have heard that decisions are much different when you sit behind the desk in the oval office. in other words, when you're president of the united states. america will work with the afghan government as long as we see determination and progress putrid however, our support is not commitment or a blank check. we will make common cause to any nation that chooses to stand and fight alongside us against this global threat. terrorists come to take heed. america will never let up until you are dealt a lasting defeat. every generation we are face

6:07 am
she had politicians who made decisions and didn't incorporate the military strategy the way it should have. when i look at this particular conference from president trump, i was very, very impressed. one thing i wanted to read right and the teleprompter beginning to end. he learned his lesson from what happened with the charlottesville speech. dagen: i want to point out that he did, and we will get this in a second, this is not what i said on the campaign trail. this is not what i've been talking about. here is how i came to the decision. he opened the address of the message of unity and he reminded people i understand why is there a risk. i understand what is said daycare and i want to speak to gentlemen, alex gonzalez, also the parent of this young medic, devin at fort bragg who is being deployed to afghanistan for the
6:08 am
first time this weekend. these are people i just met in the airport and talk to and they feel they are supported by the president. >> i think that's wonderful in for anybody when you're staring military personnel in the eye, it's a lot different than when you're talking to yourself in a vacuum. he really felt the gravity of the moment. i gave him to be come on gave him to be come on the highest ranking i've given him for anything throughout the campaign and the presidency. the speech made a lot of sense. the continuation in a lot of ways that the obama policies and he admitted that. this was a feather. general mattis said mcmaster coming to him insane this is not going to work. this is not a way to win the war. we can't leave afghanistan in a vacuum. train to the options for the use of mercenary forces, private forces over this, which is backed by dunford, the joint
6:09 am
chiefs of staff, mattis and mcmaster. >> 100%. clearly the appropriate thing to do. to the bush era top of the way that these wars are won without the specific numbers and without what president obama put on everything i've got in a lot of trouble. this will be done by this time and you don't meet the deadlines. the main issue here is what does winning actually look like? very few clear markers of what's going to be good enough for us to get out of there. no one wants american troops over there forever. >> i think it was very telling. i went back and listen to the speech a second time. this is an increase in the military force but also he pointed out the political solution is the way out of this, bringing the taliban, perhaps possible to have a settlement with the taliban. we need the assistance of india
6:10 am
and pakistan. >> calling out and now they can that's consistent with what he's doing with nato ally saying he's got to get more involved. to pay a fair share and make sure we are on the same page. dagen: kevin, i want your reaction to this because a critical part of your speech in particular was about denouncing hatred and bigotry. let's listen to the president. >> when we open our hearts to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice, no place for bigotry and no tolerance for hate. the young men and women we send to fight our wars abroad deserve to return to a country that is not at war with itself at home. we cannot remain a force for peace in the world if we are not at peace with each other. dagen: kevin, this goes a long way after the upset based on the
6:11 am
comments that saturday, but also on that tuesday. >> i think it's a conciliatory statement given the fact that this nation is feeling right now. i gave him a b. on the speech last night are several reasons. one is i think what i talk about with pakistan, we need them to step up, especially because we have lots of money. to us, and fight this. it's actually coming around and realizing he needs to unite the nation. dagen: why did you give him a b? >> he mentions we are not going to nation build. we are going to kill terrorists. the problem is we can't just do bombs and bullets. we also need to work with pakistan and buildings. >> i heard that. we will talk about the military solution, but really the ultimate endgame is a political
6:12 am
one coming to the table. i want to tell people what republican senator john mccain, what he said in response to that speech saying the president was now moving well beyond the prior administration's failed strategy of merely postponing the seed and then also i listen to lindsay graham on the fox news channel last night. he said he was proud and relieved and proud of the president and he did not make a political decision last night. again, the president has gotten some major support from members other than rand paul. >> the only thing i want to get back to his he's talking about the most important thing is he wants to devote enough time, energy and resources to the military. we talk about people being deployed over there. a lot of people the military theme a sin, we don't have enough resources. we are not given the tools doing. i would've loved to sing and talk more about that where he gives them what they need.
6:13 am
trade to who will you the final word. tonight this was a watershed moment for donald trump and that he was able to code not just the republican party, but also in the nation in general. this is the first primetime speech and i truly believe he nailed it. he brought back a lot of comments a lot of comments in the past. moving forward he has to show improvement on this pathway. >> he does have a lot of people in his base who are none too happy about us. i thought all over twitter. prominent people, what if we have an election for? versus globalism, steve bannon war. dagen: outside the white house we will hear more from bannon. stay on message going forward to a more primetime addresses and stick to this viewpoint you said so far about afghanistan. so much more coming up. we'll bring you live coverage of the president's rally in phoenix

6:22 am
dagen: 36-point gain in the dow futures after month came on the blue chips yesterday. colin president trump speech last night. will division in washington weigh on markets? joining us now is advisory group principal michael lee. congressman lawmakers come back from recess. i said that the selloff last week was in large part because it looked like the more it looks like the agenda of avarice, the harder the markets take care. all the debate about how president trump is less important to investors. >> we've seen the selloff a couple times. most recently when he fired jim comey and the leaks came out to "the new york times." what a lot of people are missing is the only way to get congress to act as threatened them with job security.
6:23 am
you have 10 senators in terms dates. 20 republican congressmen in districts that hillary kerry. these people have to act or they have to find a new job. at think you'll start seeing this come together. i wonder if the afghanistan strategy is an olive branch to the establishment if you will. so far it seems like the swamp is president trump. dagen: we had the selloff in recent weeks, but how much our investors watching what is going on in washington on capitol hill when they come back from break? very often you see these market swings on one piece of misinformation. not a lot of people at work on wall street and not a lot of other news out there. how much is the market going to trade off, not just september, but even leading up to the end of the year. >> very, very important.
6:24 am
nathan behind not even 73% of companies in 69% on the bottom line. you have improving fundamentals across the economy. atlanta economy. atlanta fed is saying 30% gdp growth in the third quarter could come in some. beneath the surface, beneath the headlines you have a really good economic situation. when you look out with three assets of caspian zero, bonds which i think are extremely overvalued stocks. dagen: i know the 10 year yield closed yesterday at 2.1 a percent or something like that which is incredibly low. >> a couple of things is the big market mover and i think you some multiples on the market traded. 18 times earnings to 21 times earnings. the fed coming out later this week with janet yellen talking in jackson hole. as long as the fed are
6:25 am
accommodated here they don't make any sudden or rash moves, we don't think there will be another rate hike later in the year. their bond buying program will whittle down to even less than anticipated. do you think that the next catalyst for the market? right now people think it's overvalued. dagen: is that the next catalyst for the market? >> i take the complete other side of that. i think we have seen interest rates down, governments and the banks restricting lending. if you look at the velocity, it is guided to a screeching halt. that is changing. as they slow down, if we do have a temper tantrum event, that would be it a buying opportunity. that's an event that will happen
6:26 am
at some point in the next couple months, maybe six months. i would say the fed moving towards normalization is a positive because it thinks can actually make a lot more money influencer more profitable, a lot more likely to take more risk and put stuff out there. we are so far away from where we were in 2007, 2008. i actually think the fed reducing the balance sheet, interest rates normalizing is a huge positive because savers will make more money in their accounts, more likely to spend more money. the next two or three will be stimulated for the economy. dagen: by the way come the kiwi is quantitative easing which is bond buying. the famous bond investor or steak income investor. >> there's been some calls so i think if you look at where interest rates are in the future
6:27 am
outlook of bonds, interest rates will go up in bonsall selloff at some point. cash pays nothing in cash at 17 times earnings of 10% plus earnings growth, really not supervalu especially taking into account these are the cleanest valance sheets we've ever seen in the s&p 500. i think we can go much, much higher in the s&p 500. >> i've been preaching about the risk in the treasury since 09. michael lee, great to see you. come back soon. victory in afghanistan. we will have a clear definition that is the president's message. what does that actually look like? a closer look at president trump strategy on the war in afghanistan. blue apron, stopped to watch on why investors may have lost their appetite. ♪ today, we're out here

cutting off their funding and exposing the false allure of their evil ideology. terrorists who slaughter innocent people will find no glory in this life or the next. they are nothing but thugs and criminals and predators and, that is right, losers. from now on victory will have a clear definition. attacking our enemies, obliterating isis, crushing al qaeda, preventing the taliban from taking over afghanistan and preventing mass terror attacks against america before they emerge. dagen: jim mattis is in baghdad to begin implementing the new south asia strategy. sources say it will include sending an additional 4000 troops to afghanistan with 8400 us troops in that country. joining me fox news military
6:34 am
analyst jack keane, general keane, great to see you but especially this morning. what is your take on the new strategy? >> the president delivered a good speech because he conducted a major policy realignment less about troops and more a strategy. strategically he placed afghanistan as a critical part of the overall strategy against radical islam which is a multi generational struggle extending beyond his presidency. secondly he has taken a regional approach recognizing south asia consisting of three countries, afghanistan, pakistan and india. houses 20% of the terrorist organizations in the world and two of those three have nuclear
6:35 am
weapons which makes south asia a dangerous place. and when you focus on a strategy in afghanistan what he is telling us is i am going to deny safe haven to international terrorists in afghanistan, period. i am not going to let another 9/11 event happen because of sanctuary and number 2 i'm going to stop the taliban and from overthrowing the government. he did not say i'm going to defeat the taliban and, he said i'm going to stop a telegram from overthrowing the afghan government and number 3, this is absolutely critical to the success of the strategy, i am going to stop pakistan from supporting the afghan taliban and in those two sanctuaries that reside in pakistan and it is more than what he said last night of housing these terrorists. i have seen the indisputable evidence that the pakistan military provides intelligence, operational oversight, logistic support, training and resources to the taliban and to conduct
6:36 am
effective operations against the united states and nato and pakistan is supposedly one of our allies. this has been outrageous behavior for 16 years, presidents of tried to do something about it. this will achieve that end. dagen: on that note, how do you put pressure on pakistan. what shape does this take? i was listening to you on the fox news channel last night. what are the signs we should be watching for? what does the us do in terms of our relationship with that country? we had been pulling resources from pakistan the last couple years. >> the resources don't have much impact on them. china can compensate for that, a close developing relationship with isolating them as a result,
6:37 am
they have lied to us in our faces. i was telling hillary clinton when she was secretary of state about the details of it and she looked at me and said they lied to me every time i talk to them. i say put the evidence in front of them, shame them, let them know what we know. what is going to happen in my view is there is going to the other pressure put on them from other countries. they are a partner with nato, not a member of nato but they partner with nato and nato is fighting this war in afghanistan, the only war nato ever fought as a result of 9/11 attack on the united states. i think rex tillerson will meet with them and tell them we can do this easy or hard. we either stop this nonsense you have been doing or we will stop it ourselves. donald trump didn't say that last night but in my judgment he applied it. the other thing pakistanis will note is the different level of commitment and moral will the president is expressing in his
6:38 am
determination. pakistanis have always believed the united states was not serious about pakistan, iraq had priority, obama wanted to get out and we were never serious so they supported valid and thinking this is the government i have to deal with. i think donald trump has an opportunity to convince him that that is not the case and we will see. dagen: one thing that struck me, the president spoke to those men and women serving in our armed forces and serving overseas and highlighted that but also the fact that he said my original instinct was to pool out, the decisions are much different when you sit behind a desk at the oval office and this was a shift for him in terms of what he said before but he is listening to his military leaders which is something president obama did not do. >> there was a mistrust between president obama's military leaders and i scratched my head why he didn't trust the because
6:39 am
military leaders are loyal to the commander-in-chief, don't always agree with him but will always be loyal. the president has demonstrated what i consider presidential leadership, he has done it twice. this is the second significant time on foreign policy, one is the shift in the middle east and commitment to challenge the uranian's and radical islam, he spoke to 55 national leaders telling them he is going to do that. i know from my own conversations with him that his instincts were why are we still in the middle east, two wars, trillion dollars, but he listens, put you put your finger on it. he listened to people who know more than the subject about him. this is the second time his instinct in policy have changed because he listens to people around him to know what they are talking about and we should be thankful for that. that is an aspect of leadership that is to be admired. dagen: i want to turn to the tragedy at sea, east singapore. the navy still searching for
6:40 am
those ten missing american sailors after the uss mccain collided with a merchant ship monday, the second warship collision in the region in months, a top us admiral ordered a pause in operations worldwide spanning investigation that will include looking at whether hacking is involved. admiral john richardson tweet toed, quote, to clarify, possibility of cyber intrusion, sabotage, no indications but review will consider all possibilities. your thoughts on this? disturbing to say the least. >> cyber espionage and cyber attack is part of the menu for going forward. the comprehensive view is needed. i know what is happening based on my contacts out there. the depletion of money we had, we are doing far less training than we used to do. it is no accident that the
6:41 am
aviation incidents have increased. they are susceptible to more human error. likely the same thing happening with preparation of semen in basic semen skills when they are at sea. this is the chief of naval operations, head of the navy holding this comprehensive study and it is wise that he is doing this to get to the bottom of it. the navy will get to the bottom of it i guarantee. they are not going to like the answer but the good news is they will do something about it. dagen: always great to see you, thank you for your insight, thank you so much. coming up, searching for survivors, the frantic search after an earthquake rocks an island off the southern coast of italy and walmart expanding its delivery service, find out where next. ♪ change our hearts

focused on innovations in food and fast food as what people like him i love chocolate cake and everyone sitting here loves chocolate cake, but this type of lava cake is different than we traditionally see in restaurants but it does have the ability or propensity to be successful but -- it would be great if we had sampled onset we could taste. dagen: i don't think they would travel well from soul but i will add when it comes to those turnovers, if you are not careful i look at that molten chocolate and i am sure it is 1000 °. >> americans love to sue for those kind of things, if it was too hot. dagen: a bummer. >> how many hot coffee suits are

feels like a lot of these republicans do not want to produce success for the president. this is their way there is a separation and growing separation that they don't want the president and his agenda to win and ultimately that means they are not pushing for what is best for america. >> there may be one or two that have that issue going i won't comment on that but in my experience in times i have been on the senate, members of the republican caucus want results for the people. the american people, very difficult for us to accomplish. they follow through and address these issues. hopefully will be there when we get back. >> i am curious to hear what your strategy is going to be for

7:34 am
with one exception. workers at nakona just north of fort worth are still making baseball gloves by hand complete with an american flag stitched into the inside. joining me now is the president. jeff, made in america, the agenda is a big part of the president'ses agenda. what does this mean for your company and to you? >> good morning, dagen. for us, it's really we're very proud to, obviously, be producing in the united states. but it's really, we're not producing here just because we're proud, we're producing because it's a good business decision for us. we're a company that started many years ago, 1934, producing here, and we've developed a reputation for producing the highest quality, highest performing glove. dagen: jeff, how do the prices run? again, the story is always, or the narrative that foreign-made products are cheaper just by their very nature because of the
7:35 am
labor costs than those made in the united states. what about these gloves compared to ones made in asia? >> well, there's no doubt our labor costs are higher than any of our competitors overseas. what we focus on is the high-end market. and our prices range, they are expensive gloves, but players spend a lot of money, serious players or aspiring players spend a lot of money and time with their gloves, and they're willing to invest in that, you know, hopefully long term and having that glove for a long time. so our gloves will range anywhere from $220 all the way up the, you know, $600 plus for a customized glove. dagen: jeff, i got caught on camera doing this, and i think anybody who's ever played baseball, i had my face in the glove because this is brand spanking new. the smell of a new ball glove is kind of infinitely amazing --
7:36 am
[laughter] so i was doing this. it wasn't because i have, you know, a pimple on my face. [laughter] >> no, there's nothing like the smell of leather and it's, obviously, one of the first things you notice when you walk into our factory. we have people who come from all over the country to see how ball gloves are made, and that's one of the unique things we can do, being american made. not only do we provide what we feel is the best product, but after a player uses that glove for a while, they can send it back to us, and we can recondition it, relace are et, repad it, just give it some love. so we have not only that unique part of it, but we have people, like i say, who come from all over the country to see how ball gloves are made, and that smell of leather is definitely that you notice when you walk into the factory. >> jeff, it's kevin kelly. i think getting a new ball glove was one of my favorite things of
7:37 am
all time when i was growing up. this is twofold for you, i had to put the baseball in here, i'd have some oil glove, put the belt around it, let it sit overnight. do we have to do that with your gloves? as well as what is the biggest thing on the president's agenda that can benefit your business? we've had small businesses talk about the rising health care costs, they would have loved health care get passed because it's gone up 21%, or is it tax reform? what's the best way for you, for your business, to reinvest in it, the taxes or the health care? >> i guess on the first question in terms of, you know, ball gloves and how do you get it to be perfect just for you, it is a little different today. today's world, as we all know, is a lot more, is much more about immediate gratification. so players are really looking for game-ready gloves. and it really depends on the series. we have some gloves that are much more structured. generally for high school, college, pro players. and then, you know, we also have
7:38 am
gloves that are very game-ready made with leathers like bison and kangaroo that are lightweight and easily so break in, that don't require maybe the leather belt that you talked about. [laughter] you know, as far as, you know, our focus is not so much on who's in toughs office and -- who's in office and what the policies are, you know, our focus is really on, you know, investing in american manufacturing for the men pits. for the benefits. we're excited about our future. we're invest anything a new facility. we're looking to grow our line outside of baseball gloves into more leather lifestyle products, and that's all because of the advantages that we see in american manufacturing. unlike overseas production which, you know, i have experience in myself. for 15 years, i ran another glove company that produced exclusively overseas, and as
7:39 am
much as there's advantages and there's a lot of skill overseas, it's just very different than our production environment. and a lot of it comes down to the people, frankly. you know, at our factory there's operators that have been around for years, and there's not only is the skill level high, but they're involved in the process much more than you would imagine all the way from the start of development coto really understanding what our business goals are, so that's what our focus is on. >> we have buffalo and steer hide represented here the set is, there you go. >> this is the american buffalo. dagen: darren has a question for you, jeff. >> jeff, e just want to commend you on being a part of the american dream and you are solidifying what donald trump's points are in connection with buying american and being american. moving forward, how do you look to extend your roetter production -- your leather production to other items and at
7:40 am
the same token keeping this an american made product. give me an example of some products you're looking to embark upon in the future. >> we launched this past spring a flip flop line that was a collaboration with another texas-based company called harimari using our ball glove leather. we're working on a number of other leather accessory items from leather baseball jackets to men's belts to women's handbags. even some leather incomes for dogs, collars and leashes. dagen: oh, yeah. [laughter] >> is -- so we're looking to introduce some of these items over the next several months before the end of the year. dagen: nice, jeff. well, you've got to come back and show us what you've got, because i know that, certainly, pet is the a huge growth business in this country.
